Thanks NY DAILY NEWS. I was wondering what Daneille Ward thought about Thor's costume...

"We'll see if (this new Thor) is a feminist breakthrough or not depending on how much clothing she's wearing," said Danielle Ward, manager of Jim Hanley's Universe comic store on Staten Island. 
The cover to the 1 in 25 variant cover for THOR #1, which will go on sale October 1, was used in the July 16th NY DAILY NEWS article. Unlike article-writer Ethan Sacks I WILL credit Esad Ribic

Congratulations to Ive Svorcina for being nominated for a 2014 Eisner Award in the "Best Painter/Multimedia Artist(interior art)" category for his work on THOR GOD OF THUNDER.

For those of you that are not semantically sophisticated enough to comprehend Eisner Award terminology "Best Painter/Multimedia Artist" = Colorist. 
Svorcina's collaborator, Ron Garney, was not deemed worthy of such rarified recognition by his peers.

If you are a fan of Thor, cover art and popular movies the THOR GOES HOLLYWOOD one-shot is your Golden Apple.

It collects the 17 movie-themed variant covers that Marvel issued when the first Thor movie was released three years ago. Each cover also has a text page with commentary on the homages.
In THOR GOES HOLLYWOOD we learn that artist Greg Horn's favorite movie is JAWS.

Non-Marvel Thor Friday

Plenty of differences between this Thor and the Marvel one. The one I found the most interesting was that thunderstorms trigger the mortal-to-Thor transformation. This comic is from 1959 and the cover is the work of Curt Swan and Stan Kaye.
